The new Blackberry Q10 is all set to make its India debut soon. The smartphone which is the second to run the company’s latest Blackberry 10 operating system recently went on sale in the UK and Canada. The smartphone has received a far better response than the full touch screen enabled Z10 also running the new BB10 OS. What seems to have worked in favor of the Q10 is the incorporation of the QWERTY keypad which makes the old timers feel instantly at home with the device. Blackberry is known more for its QWERTY enabled smartphones with its Blackberry Bold being an iconic device in this respect.
Coming to its availability in India, the online retailer Snapdeal has already put the device on pre-order where one can place an order for as low as just INR. 1,000. That translates to roughly about $18. The device though hasn’t yet been provided with an official price tag though that is coming soon enough considering the phone is set for an official release on the last week of May itself. What this means is that one will have to hurry and place an order for an assured delivery as the Q10 has had a better opening than its peer, the Z10.
As for its specs, the Q10 comes with a 3.1 inch super AMOLED touchsceen display that boasts of a superb pixel density of 328. The device is built around a dual core 1.5 GHz Cortex A9 chip that works in conjugation with a 2 GB RAM. On-board storage amounts to 16 GB though there is also a microSD card slot as well that maxes out at 64 GB. The Q10 also comes with a 8 megapixel rear shooter complete with a LED flash as well as a 2 megapixel front facing camera. Other cool features the Q10 comes with includes face detection, image stabilization, geo-tagging and so on.
